Picked up a nice 50" case plow, cut the hitch off it and made a new hitch and lift bar for the 3314H. Here she is attached and ready to go.


Here is the old crapsman plow I took off. Going to put it on my B10 as a spare.


Picture of the hitch.


Made some wheel weight brackets that take 1" hole style barbell weights. Made them able to take 2 25 lbs. plates each side. Currently Ive got a one plate each side at 50 lbs. total.

Looking good! I usually blow instead of pushing snow, but using the blade is fun! Dave, I made a similar set up a couple of years ago. I used an 8 pound weight that fit inside the rim on each side, drilled two holes to match the rim holes, then made the shaft with a pilot that fit inside of the rim center and welded it to the weight. Now I slide the shaft into the rim center and tighten the two bolts, then slip on weights as needed. I have 45 lbs on each wheel this year. When I had the 10 inch rims I used 75 pounds each wheel, but the 8 inch rims won't hold as much without sticking out too far. Steve

Thanks for the kind words guys, here is a picture of the weight mount. The bracket ir 2"x1/4" cut and welded to clear the axle, the bolts are 1/2" carriage and a 3/4" center bolt. the other side is a flat bar with the same bolt cut and welded to fit.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
